I'm Not Buying This Story...

I orginally read this - courtesy of a friend - from the Washington Post. The Post has moved the link and I can't find it, so here is on ABC Australia -

Three Year Old Buys Car on EBay

I don't think that's how it went down. Here's what I think really happened -

She bought the car, then got cold feet and/or didn't know how to explain it to her husband so she blames the kid.


You're telling me the kid not only hit the "buy it now" button, but also the two or three other clicks it took to close the deal? Out of all the stuff that can be clicked, both on the page and on the screen, the child bought the car? Really? Really?!

Am I the only one that sees it this way? Am I really that jaded?

Perhaps I don't spend enough time with 3 year olds. I understand that you can't keep an eye on them 24/7 - Shit Happens.

I know that. I just need a second opinion. I'm a big man; If I'm wrong, I'll say so.
